“Up To Him”
Rocky Comfort/Nine North
Tracy Lawrence is set to deliver his second album from his own Rocky Comfort Records, an inspirational collection titled The Rock (produced by Lawrence and Julian King), in June. To introduce the spirit behind the project, he is releasing the first single, “Up To Him,” to radio on March 24, 2009. (CDX Vol. 470/Track 6)
Written by David Kent and Kim Johnson, the single brings forth an assuring, unified message that could not come at a more appropriate time. “In the current political climate and in consideration of the overall mood of our country, ‘Up To Him’ is hopeful, positive and looks toward a brighter future,” says Lawrence. “It’s the perfect introduction to the new CD; the emotional and musical tapestry will make it a ‘connection’ song that will appeal to all audiences.”
Consistent with Lawrence’s musical message, the release of “Up To Him” follows Lawrence’s No. 1 friends-helping-friends anthem “Find Out Who Your Friends Are.” The music video for “Up To Him” will be filmed in the coming weeks.
Lawrence’s career has spanned more than 15 years, during which time he has proved to be a formidable stylist with an instantly recognizable voice. He’s garnered 17 No. 1 hits, many gold and platinum albums, and numerous career achievement awards. His long list of hits, including “Alibis,” “If The World Had A Front Porch,” “Time Marches On,” “Sticks And Stones” and “Paint Me A Birmingham,” has made him a staple with country listeners.
